Audit logs

Brands need to be able to consume and parse detailed audit logs of any significant action taken in their Sparkcentral environment by users.We already have audit trails that track actions made on a conversation by users.

Audit logs search

You can search the audit logs (based on keywords and/or for a specific user) and see what happened by whom and when.

You can find this feature under SettingsPrivacy & SecurityAudit Logs

Downloading the logs

The Sparkcentral application logs changes that are made by admins in the settings section of the application. These audit logs are stored in an AWS S3 bucket and can be accessed directly(AWS CLI, AWS SDK, …) or using SFTP.

The Audit Logs will be written every hour, where each line entry will identify actions taken within the Sparkcentral Settings by an Admin.

  • Below is an example for the PROD / US environment:
  • Below is an example for the PREU / EU environment:

Sparkcentral will notify you when access is granted to the bucket and provide you with the <ORGANIZATION_ID>.

Please keep in mind that access will be limited to the s3:GetObject and s3:ListBucket actions and prefix /public/<ORGANIZATION_ID>/.
